By about noon on Tuesday, it already felt like it had been a long week. When most hope seemed lost, a perfectly lovely little pop song clocking in at 2:07 found my ears. Not having recalled hearing it before, I threw caution to the wind and brazenly took my iPod from my pocket in broad daylight.
It turned out to be a song called "Seventeen Dirty Magazines" by a band called Modern Skirts. Modern Skirts? But they're guys! That's crazy! Where the hell did this come from? I played it over and over until I thought I smelled smoke, gave it a rest and then started again.
I finally got all modern myself, did a search and saw that the band was from Athens GA. I knew where to look next - over at Beth's place. Sho' nuff, she'd posted the song on one of her mix tapes on November 23, 2007. I must have downloaded it at the time, let it ferment and foment and ta-da. Even when you're not thinking about blogging, it creeps back in. Thanks Beth!
If you'd like a listen, be my guest.
